It's starting to look cozy

 I added printie windows, doors, and rugs. I think it gives a tin lithograph feeling to my little house. That's appropriate for the furniture, too. Since I took these pictures, I added satin varnish to the windows and doors. I used winter scenes since this has been such a wintery winter. :-) This room still needs pictures on the wall, sheet music for the piano, a couple of plants, and maybe some magazines for the coffee table. Since it's the family room I may add some board games, as well. Oh, and all of the windows need some sort of curtains.
 I need lamps for the bedside tables, a book or two, wall decor, perfumes and such for the vanity...
 The bathroom needs rugs, towels, and toiletries.
 I really like the dining/sitting room. The left wall has a matching door (the entrance to the house) and another window. I need drapes, a centerpiece, a chair side table with lamp and book or newspaper, candles or something for the mantel.
I like the kitchen, too. I made a tile backsplash behind the sink and cabinet and added a coordinating tile behind the range. I made the hanging cupboard and hung a couple of blue willow plates on the wall. I need to add some plants, a clock, and maybe a pot rack or at least a spice rack over the stove.

Sam here.
What a cute little project. You have made a very cozy little house, and have taken me back about a million years. I had most of that furniture when I was a little girl and your photos have brought back tons of memories. Thanks!

De,
Your house is turning out quite cozy and it is a less expensive way to have a cute dollhouse, thanks for the inspiration.
